Our Wedding and Honeymoon at Fountainhead.
After looking at various locations in this part of Spain, we decided to celebrate our wedding at Fountainhead. We also couldn't resist this fantastic location for our Honeymoon. We were not disappointed. In fact our Wedding could not have gone any better, from the very first day of planning to moment we left.....
We had our wedding ceremony at 4pm on May 25th 2013. We had a total of 17 guests and they all witnessed our marriage with the most stunning of backdrops - the andalusion mountains. We had the alter setup underneath the archway with the valley behind us and even now, when looking back at photos and at our wedding video, the views still take our breath away. It may sound cheesy but it is true.
After the ceremony we had delicious canopies and Cava. We then had a 7 course sit down meal and again with the mountain views, this only made it even more special.
The decision to have our honeymoon at Fountainhead was definately the right one. Privacy means privacy and we had it all honeymoon (even on our balcony). We were only visisted when we requested something. We stayed in the Arizona suite. It has a jacuzzi bath overlooking the valley. The bed is extremely large and comfortable. It has a large decked balcony with a private plunge pool. It was a perfect retreat and a perfect honeymoon.
The food & Drink:
The 7 course meal for the wedding breakfast and all of the meals during our honeymoon were of a standard that only Michelin star restaraunts could replicate. Simply amazing food by an amazing chef and all of our guests were of the same opinion. Thank you Helen.
Peter has a very varied and fabulous selection of wines. All the ones we tried, we loved.
The service from all of the waiters/waitresses was second to none. Our every need was catered for during the wedding and the honeymoon.
Front of house was Peter and he was very welcoming, friendly and helpful.
All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate our wedding. Fountainhead will always be a great memory and we will definitely be going back.
